Hi there,

Can't find anything anywhere on how to solve this issue I am having.

I have a Cygwin installation on a SBS 2003 box and I am attempting to connect using WinSCP from an XP Pro client on the same network.

I have created a brand new account in AD, and created passwd and group files in the Cygwin directory.

When I attempt to connect using the new username, the password is denied even though I know for a fact it is correct. There are a few accounts that have no issue with connecting using exactly the same setup though... I have tried creating the account from scratch, and I have tried creating the new account by replicating my own account (which works without issue)

Here is the log from WinSCP:
